1: ... 2: Will he who is protesting give teaching to the Ruler of all? Let him who has arguments to put forward against God give an answer. 3: And Job said in answer to the Lord, 4: Truly, I am of no value; what answer may I give to you? I will put my hand on my mouth. 5: I have said once, and even twice, what was in my mind, but I will not do so again. 6: Then the Lord made answer to Job out of the storm-wind, and said, 7: Get your strength together like a man of war: I will put questions to you, and you will give me the answers. 8: Will you even make my right of no value? will you say that I am wrong in order to make clear that you are right? 9: Have you an arm like God? have you a voice of thunder like his? 10: Put on the ornaments of your pride; be clothed with glory and power: 11: Let your wrath be overflowing; let your eyes see all the sons of pride, and make them low. 12: Send destruction on all who are lifted up, pulling down the sinners from their places. 13: Let them be covered together in the dust; let their faces be dark in the secret place of the underworld. 14: Then I will give praise to you, saying that your right hand is able to give you salvation. 15: See now the Great Beast, whom I made, even as I made you; he takes grass for food, like the ox. 16: His strength is in his body, and his force in the muscles of his stomach. 17: His tail is curving like a cedar; the muscles of his legs are joined together. 18: His bones are pipes of brass, his legs are like rods of iron. 19: He is the chief of the ways of God, made by him for his pleasure. 20: He takes the produce of the mountains, where all the beasts of the field are at play. 21: He takes his rest under the trees of the river, and in the pool, under the shade of the water-plants. 22: He is covered by the branches of the trees; the grasses of the stream are round him. 23: Truly, if the river is overflowing, it gives him no cause for fear; he has no sense of danger, even if Jordan is rushing against his mouth. 24: Will anyone take him when he is on the watch, or put metal teeth through his nose?
